Not I, But Christ The vision of the Impact Movement is to see the African American community fulfill its destiny as a reflection of the redemptive power of Jesus. And our mission is African American emerging leaders, spiritually focused, financially free, and morally fit, to take the truth of Jesus Christ to the campus community and world. “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out laborers into His field.” (Luke 10:2)

It’s funny, because last summer the Lord closed all the doors leading me to do ministry in Africa. After being really frustrated I just stopped and said “Lord, whatever way you want me to serve in advancing YOUR Kingdom, I’ll do it.”
Currently the operations team is planning Impact regional conferences throughout the country for college students to attend.

While our campus coaching teams travel throughout the country and overseas throughout the year, directly connecting with students, God has me, for now, behind the scenes helping with administrative tasks needed to keep the ministry going. I give all honor and praise to God just for this privilege to labor so that someone can find HOPE in Christ! I am enjoying my new life in this new season. God has truly been faithful to me.

And as Paul thanked the believers at the church of Philippi, I thank you for showing your concern by giving to me financially. Please know that you are helping me to better serve God and establish His Kingdom on earth while you are storing up treasures in heaven at the same time. “I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at Love, last you have renewed your concern for Your Partner His Laborer, me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you have had no opportunity to show it.” (Philippians 4:10)
